NJ Gov. Chris Christie

New Jersey governor Chris Christie met with about 150 citizens in a church gym to discuss his tax and budget cuts. One of his cuts he had asked that teachers forego their annual pay increase and pay an additional 1.5% of their annual salary towards their benefits. When the teachers union, National Education Association (NEA) said “NO” Christie was forced to impose cuts.

“Your union said that is the greatest assault on public education in the history of the state," Christie said. "That’s why the union has no credibility, stupid statements like that."

Teacher Rita Wilson, a Kearny resident, argued that if she were paid $3 an hour for the 30 children in her class, she’d be earning $83,000, and she makes nothing near that. Christie told her that her benefits added up to quite a bit to which Wilson, who has a master’s degree, said she was not being compensated for her education and experience, Christie said:
"Well, you know then that you don’t have to do it." The audience cheered and applauded.

If all political leaders had the backbone and intestinal fortitude that Christie is showing, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in. This country would be thriving beyond all imagination. Politicians are in the game to make the money, plain and simple.

Anybody that believes otherwise deserves to be fleeced.

When we go to the polls in August and November, remember these people are like teenagers, you can let them take the car but you still have to tell them to take the garbage out or clean their rooms. People we elect need to be reminded of why we put them there on a constant basis. It doesn’t take much; a quick email questioning them on an upcoming vote. This gets their attention.

Rant for the Day

Obama and the democrats say that spending under GW Bush was at an all time high when the truth of the matter is that when GW left office, he was at 2.1% of GDP just a few points above the WWII margin of 1.8%.

Under Obama’s plan, we are at now well above 4% and he did that in just one year. Think of the possibilities that he could do in 4 years or more.

Like Gov. Jennifer Granholm gushed in a speech about her plan for Michigan “In five years you are going to be blown away” Well that was the truth only we thought she meant that in a good way, that Michigan would be thriving again and jobs would be abundant, not that we’d lose a million jobs in our state and have another migration of our family, neighbors and friends to Texas and other states.

Texas by the way has no state tax on income and they have a part-time state legislature.

Obama campaigned as a moderate and even a conservative in some instances stating that he would rid Washington of the pork barrel spending by stripping the pork off all bills that came before him. So why was it no surprise when he went ahead and signed the Omnibus Bill with over 9,000 pieces of pork attached to it?

He promised that “no lobbyists would find a job in my cabinet” just two weeks after his election, he had nominated a lobbyist a day; Eric Holder, Tom Vilsack, William Lynn, David Hayes, Mark Patterson and Cecelia Munoz just to name a few. The list continues to grow as you read this.

Obama has toured the world explaining how bad the US and been to other countries and how we are not a Christian nation even though we were founded on Christian principals and that 85% of the country considers themselves to be Christians. He also likes to bow to radical dictators that use violence against their own people and he likes to give leaders of their countries the room to come onto our land and reprimand the American people as evil doers for wanting to protect our sovereignty by supporting our troops and protecting our borders.

This of his double-talk and lies goes on and on and on. I have heard as much as I can take from this man. I prefer to turn the channel whenever he appears on my TV, likewise when I hear him on the radio.

Common sense tells most Americans that this guy is useless and is doing everything he can to destroy our capitalistic ways and our free market system that has served us so well for over 200 years.

Calerdon's Mexico

I sat and watched as the president of Mexico Felipe Calderon criticized the US and blamed us for all that is wrong in his country. He attacked our 2nd amendment blaming it for 80% of the guns in Mexico. He blamed the people addicted to drugs here for causing the drug traffic on the Mexican border and causing the violence and deaths. He stated that Arizona’s immigration law would lead to racial profiling and that it "ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree."

The democratic members of congress stood up and cheered, and gave this little puke a standing ovation.

I never thought I would see the day that a foreign dictator would come onto American soil and reprimand us and be supported by so many obviously neutered liberal politicians.

Calderon of course did not mention that his country has its roots under his leadership in socialism that is again just another example of how it does not work. He did not mention the fact that his people that come to our country and use our resources such as; free health care, food stamps and welfare send back hundreds of millions of untaxed dollars a year to Mexico making it the second largest revenue producing industry in Mexico.

While there may be some truth to Calderon’s statements, if his country had a style of government that promoted business and jobs, maybe the people would be more likely to stay and help grow their country.

As many as one million a year escape the blight the Mexican government has produced and they account for 31% of all immigrants in the US and that reflect 10% of the Mexican population. It must give Calderon a warm fuzzy feeling to know that 10% of the people born in his country leave it.

Calderon also did not mention that fact that under Mexico’s immigration laws, you go to jail if you are found to be there illegally, up to 10 years in some cases.

If it were not for the cash these immigrants send back to support their families, you can bet he’d make it illegal for Mexican’s to cross the border.

Maybe the US should adopt Mexico’s immigration laws, but it doesn’t matter if the federal government will not enforce it as has been the case all along and the reason Arizona had to pass their law to protect its citizens.

Mexico's President Calderon on Immigration

Obama has again trashed the United States and allowed Mexico’s president Felipe Calderon to do the same from the front lawn of the White House. If I were “king” I would have immediately said to all “this press conference is over” and had Calderon escorted back to the border along Mexico and let him walk back through the very troubled area’s that his policies have caused.

After this country and the generosity of our people have taken in millions of Mexicans, fed them, educated them, gave them free health care he has the audacity to say that our immigration laws are “flawed” and promote “racism”
Can we enter his country illegally and get fed, get free health care or a first class education?

This socialist country of Calderon’s has its people starving for education, there’s no work to be had, they are oppressed by the government and they are being killed by drug cartels that bribe the politicians and the police force, it’s the only way to make a decent living in Mexico. These are the results of Calderon’s policies, so why should we continue to support his country when his policies have terrorized his.

Obama again spewed more lies about the Arizona law speaking from the White House lawn stated that the law was a “misdirection“ of a “broken immigration system” and that this law was “unprecedented”

The word “broken” is a favorite of the Democratic Party used this past 18 months to describe; heath care, energy systems, banks, financial markets, auto makers, infrastructure, you name it, they’ve put a “broken” in front of it and tried to take it over.

None of the crime spree’s brought on by these Mexican drug cartels on a daily basis are brought to the attention by our press, yet when a 2nd grader asks Michelle Obama why the president is looking to send her illegal mother back to Mexico makes every channel on the dial.

I am fed up with Obama bowing to these oppressive dictators and whipping the American people like a red-headed step-child telling the world that America has been “bad” and” arrogant”

This law does nothing more than mirror the federal immigration laws that our government has yet to enforce. He stated that the law could lead to racial profiling. What law won’t?

Obama continues to divide the country using racism. Commenting on the law he said that people would be suspect of being an illegal because of how they look, meaning Hispanic people, well yeah! If a police officer gives a description of a bank robber wouldn’t the term “white male” or “black female” be helpful in identifying the suspect?

More than 60%of the people in this country support Arizona’s law and if the federal government does not start enforcing the laws already in place, the rest of the states will follow.

Napolitano and Holder

Why does Homeland Security Department Secretary Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Eric Holder and State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, who have all gone on television to attack the Arizona Immigration Law and then admit they have yet to read the legislation still have job?

These idiots stumbled and stammered on National television when questioned by Sen. McCain on why they thought the Arizona Immigration Law was racially biased.

When McCain asked if they had read the bill, AG Eric Holder responded with “well I haven’t had the time, to uh, to read the whole thing. I uh – I browsed over it but no, I have not read it” Isn’t that his job?

Janet Napolitano, who has been a vocal critic of the new Arizona immigration law, told Sen. John McCain’s Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Monday that she had not reviewed the law in detail, but nevertheless repeated criticism she made in April on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the law is a “bad law enforcement law.”

Laura Ingraham on her radio show while interviewing Lou Dobbs, commented that “she would not hire Napolitano to rake the leaves in her backyard” I would have to agree.

Obama called the bill “misguided” and then dumped out this huge lie... “Now, suddenly, if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to get harassed — that’s something that could potentially happen… That’s not the right way to go”

Governor Brewer and Commissioner Pierce of Arizona are standing up to these elitists bums. Gary Pierce in a letter to the Mayor of Los Angeles that if LA wanted to play the “boycott” game, he could suggest to Arizona’s power companies who supply power to LA to cut the cord or maybe they could increase costs. I’m sure this shut a few mouths in the LA city council meeting room.

All this commotion being thrown around by the liberals while they are spending our money faster that we can make it or they can print it; taking more of our freedoms everyday by passing laws such as the health care bill and unemployment is still at 10% and they’re telling us we’re going to have a jobless recovery?

What in the hell is that?

The libs are doing this to try and hide more of the same crap they’ve been doing. They very much want to pass Cap-n-Trade, the energy bill based on the lie that carbon is causing global warming. This was proven to be false but they don’t care about “science” they want more of our money; to limit what temperatures our homes should be kept at and what kind of car we can drive, how far we can drive it.

Fortunately, the vast majority of us are aware and we’re not buying into it. The polls and election results are beginning to reflect this, let’s keep the pressure up.

Where are the Fire Booms?

Despite the millions of dollars we have already paid in the form of taxes, the US did not have a single fire boom on hand to control the spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Congress set a cap limit in the 1990 in response to the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska at $75 million that oil companies would be expected to pay to cover the costs of oil spill clean ups. This is known as the Oil Pollution Act. Later in 1994, the Clinton administration produced the "In-Situ Burn" plan in 1994 calling for responding to a major oil spill in the Gulf with the immediate use of fire booms.

Problem is, they never purchased the booms.

Again, our government has failed us by spending our money that was intended to protect us against these accidents by spending the money elsewhere, most likely on some pet project in some congressman’s back yard.

Congress is now back peddling trying to raise the cost that oil companies must pay to $10 billion retroactively.

Obama, being the largest recipient of campaign donations from BP Oil had exempted them from a meeting on offshore oil safety.

No matter what his chatter, it’s business as usual in DC.

Taxpayers will again take it on the chin to pay twice and more for lack of government responsibility. If they succeed in raising the cost to BP to $10 billion, gas prices will go up. The fire booms that are now on order (6) that we already paid for will be paid for again using our tax dollars.

This in turn will lead to all costs rising again on food and consumables that are delivered using any method that requires oil and gas, which is everything we use. This is just what we need at this time. the economy despite the democratic talking heads, is not recovering. This has a real possibility of putting us into a real depression, something the Obama administration will be over-joyed about bringing about the "change" they have been looking for as spelled out in Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" that Obama taught in college and Hillary idolizes.

I can’t state strong enough the need to find the most conservative candidates and get them elected in 2010 and 2012. We thought the republicans were bad until this lot of criminals got put into the White House and are systematically destroying our country by “using whatever means possible” as quoted by Ms. Pelosi and “never let a crisis go to waste” Chief of Staff (as Sean Hannity refers to him) “Rahm Rambo Dead-Fish Emmanuel”

ObamaCare Revisited

Ronald Reagan was right on the money when he said, "One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It's very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. ... From here, it's a short step to all the rest of socialism."

Obama lied, cheated and bought votes to get his ObamaCare plan through that will do everything he said it wouldn’t; increase costs -- how many still believe that? He stated that America spent more money on health care "but wasn't any healthier." He grossly distorted the numbers of the chronically uninsured. Lifestyles and diets have more to do with longevity than medical care does.

He lied when he said wouldn’t support a “public option” but quite possibly his biggest lie was that he would not sign a bill that added a dime to the federal deficit. This was his major selling point.

Just two months after the bill was signed, the CBO urged on by Rep. Jerry Lewis, has published a cost comparison on the real numbers, not the ones Obama, Reid and Pelosi fed them and guess what? It is well over the $1 trillion mark they guaranteed it would not go.

What has socialized medicine done for other countries around the world? Look at Greece, Italy, Ireland, Canada and Brittan to name a few.

The people of Greece are rioting in the streets, not because they want to save their country from ruin but because they want their money. They could care less about their country so long as other people pay for their health care, wages, food, and other items promised to them under the socialist style government. The government there is over-burdened with socialized health care bills, over-paid public job wages through public led unions that rape the system that include incredible benefits featuring the right to retire at age 50.
The same things are happening in Ireland.

Italy is at 115% of GDP, meaning they spend $115 for every $100 they take in. Watch for them to go postal soon.

Canada and Brittan have spent every dime they can steal from their citizens and still cannot keep costs under control. Brittan has just elected a conservative leader to Parliament and is looking hard to find a way back to capitalism and free markets to get them out of the red.

And here in this country, we have the liberal left yo-yo’s that think this is the way to go. WTF?
Could it be any planner than the egg on your face? This is not rocket science; an ounce of common sense shows us that this WILL NOT WORK! This is not some story from years gone by history; this is happening right now.

We must support the most conservative candidates we can find in the upcoming elections. Get out and VOTE!

LA City Council

I find it fascinating that the city council members in Los Angeles passed a vote to boycott any business they do with Arizona. Most of this was called symbolic by the mainstream press because it will have little effect on Arizona as LA does very little business with AZ.

All this over the fact that the people or AZ are over-run by illegal immigrants that are destroying the state financially.

Arizonans fork out nearly $1.3 billion annually to pay for all of the costs incurred from illegal immigration; around $810 million for education, $400 million for health care related expenses, $80 million in incarceration costs, and the remainder in welfare benefits. All of this is required while Arizona runs a $500 million deficit annually and these are figures from 2004. They estimate that every year the number of illegal’s increase by 500,000.

There is a need for some unskilled labor in the US but not at this rate. Our country is being sold out by the liberals by destroying our manufacturing, garment and energy industries.

We have become of country where in order to make a decent wage; you have to be a highly skilled worker; such as a doctor, engineer, chemist, etc.

Arizona and Gov. Brewer are doing exactly what they are supposed to do; protect their citizens and their way of life. The federal government won’t do it. The law has been around for a long time but they refuse to enforce it.

The democrats want amnesty, that way they can add another 15 million democratic voters to prop up more of their liberal agenda.

This is a little message I sent to each and every member of the LA city council through the link at the top of this letter.

I'll tell you what "symbolic" is: NO more California wines, almonds, avocados, citrus juices or fruits in my house... Now that's symbolic!

Entitlements & Taxes

The age of entitlements is destroying our nation. The families of those that were killed on 9/11 are getting millions (an average of $1.185 million) through the federal government while the families of our fallen soldiers get squat. Now the people from the Oklahoma City bombings have organized and are asking for the same deal as was reported by Rush Limbaugh.

We can see where this is leading. This is the end result of 50 years of entitlements; everybody thinks the government owes then something, problem is, the government has no money or no way of generating it other than taking it from all of us.

So in effect, we will have to pay for what the radical Islamic terrorists did to these people while Obama bows to leaders of these countries, keeps apologizing for the U.S. and telling them how arrogant we are.

The federal government is good at one thing and that is finding creative ways to take more of our money even if it is not supported by our constitution. They use slippery techniques to hide these increases in the back of bills passed that have nothing to do with what the bill was intended such as adding health care expenses into the stimulus bill or tacking on a few cents on our phone, gas and electric bills.

Congress sees fit to make sure they get a raise while telling seniors they will not get a 3% raise they were supposed to get. Our state legislature did the same thing; they get an automatic raise unless two-thirds of the senate votes it down, but no such luxury is afforded to us when they want to raise our taxes.

The military was about to get a well needed pay increase but the Pentagon is yelling “Whoa, hold on here, that’s a lot of money” The Pentagon is facing a crunch in its budget and now doesn’t want to pay the people that do the work the money they deserve.

Military soldiers deserve to be paid at least the same amount police officers do, but the Pentagon doesn’t like using the proverbial “war chest” to pay them. Everybody wants to pass the buck and no one wants to be responsible for paying their fair share. The liberals are fond of giving away every bodies else’s money as long as it’s not theirs.

Everybody needs to pay their fair share in taxes. Why in the world are we taxed for “income”?

This by its name begs the question; why work if you’re going to punish me for earning?

A consumption tax would be a great idea if we could get it passed the letches in Washington that are control freaks and dubious greed mongers. With a consumption tax (sales tax) we would eliminate a whole slew of taxes that compiled on top of each other.

When you get your paycheck, you are paid with money that has already been taxed. When you buy gas for your car, you pay another tax using money that has already been taxed. If you make a mortgage payment, you pay more taxes with money that has already been taxed.

We need to alleviate these taxes and reduce the size and scope of government. They have grown too large and have gained too much control. We need to start by replacing everyone in congress that supports big government. In our current situation, that would be 99% of democrats. Once we replace these power and money seekers, we can work on the republicans that do not adhere to our constitution until we have achieved our goal of a conservative lead congress.

Conservative v/s Liberal

From the internet -- author unknown

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he does't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

Free Speech

Why do liberals want to silence talk radio? Mainly because the truth hurts.

Liberal talk radio has never worked. The reason is because there is no substance to their reasoning; it’s all emotions. As was pointed out by Rick Santorum on the Bill Bennett Show, “When conservatives in the house give a lecture or speech on a bill they support, they show charts and graphs to indicate how this plan will work and why”. When a liberal gets up, it’s with pictures and stories of a person suffering”

They never give a solid reason of how the plan will work, what the true cost will be or what effect it will have on the future of our economy and country.

Let’s take the health care bill. Originally, the reason to pass this bill was to cover the uninsured and to reduce costs. John Dingell brought in a woman; Marcia Boehm in a wheelchair from New Jersey to help him sell this plan at a Town Hall meeting in Romulus, Mi in August of 2009. Costs were of no concern to Dingell, destroying the health care of 85% to satisfy the 15% made sense to him. All emotions and no facts.

Consider the outrageous quotes by Florida Rep. Alan Grayson; “We’re dealing with people on the other side who are utterly unscrupulous. These are foot-dragging -- knuckle dragging Neanderthals who known nothing but the word no” Again, emotions, no facts. More of this scholars quotes can be read here

We have to look at what the future holds for this country in the direction the present administration is taking us and we have great examples happening right now in Greece and Great Britain, They are rioting in the streets in Greece because the socialist government has spent every bodies money and now to get the country out of bankruptcy, they must make cut-backs. What a concept! Why didn’t they think of that before they went belly-up?

The same thing has happened in Great Britain. The working class are fed up with paying enormous amounts of taxes to support those that don’t. It has gotten to the point in these countries that if the government takes any more money in taxes, the people will not be able to pay mortgages, rent or automotive loans.

This is the direction that Obama and the democrats are trying to lead us. They think because they can pull it off because they are “smarter” than those in these other countries.

Far be it from me to question a leader that has no experience running a business, has never held a real job in the private sector, and whose main skill set seems to be that of a radical community organizer hell-bent on destroying the capitalist system that provided him the most opportunities and the best possible education in the world.

If it were not for talk radio and conservative news outlets, most of this information would be buried in the state-run media. Free speech must remain free in order for this republic to stand tall.

Obama and his minions attack the people of this country that want a fiscally responsible and constitutionally limited government. They refer to them as right wing nut jobs, tea baggers, Timothy McVeigh wannabes and swastika carrying Nazi’s but they won’t call the people that attempt to blow up US cities and citizens what they are – terrorists.

The terrorists use car bombs and suicide bombs to blow up buildings, parking structures and kill innocent people.

This latest incident with the Times Square bomber is a case in point. If this jihadist would have carried out his mission, we wouldn’t be calling them “made made disasters” as Sherlock Napolitano wishes to refer to them.
We’d be having congressional hearings, senate hearings and if we had someone with balls in the White House, we’d be sequestering every nation that has contributed to the training and funding of these crimes instead of bowing and apologizing for the way the US has treated these poor souls.

If not for the US, most of these countries would still be riding a horse to work.

Obama accuses the US of using “25% of the world resources” when we are only “3% of the world population” So what! We’re not stealing the oil from the Middle East. We’re not robbing the Chinese of all the goods they make. We are paying for them and making these countries filthy rich in the process.

The US has created, designed and manufactured new technologies that have brought health, wealth, life-changing products and conveniences to the majority of the world and in some cases; we have given away the technologies.

How would our world look today had the United States stayed part of the British Empire and never became the world’s super power? Would Great Britain even be a country or would we all be speaking German or Japanese.

Obama needs to replaced; plain and simple. He has only contempt for this country and our way of life. He was programmed all his life starting with his Muslim Marxist father and right on up and through the teachings of Saul Alinsky and his hate-mongering, anti-American preacher, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who all taught him that America is a “demon” country.

We are a greedy and treacherous people that steal resources from other countries -- we kill women and babies to secure oil and other riches that we hold precious. When he looks at America’s culture and heritage, he sees only the bad. He believes we should take everything from the haves and give it to the have-nots until there is nothing left but the elitists and the have-nots.

The liberals are always in favor of spreading the wealth as long as I’s not their wealth being spread around.

Democrats have long pushed the lie that they are "for the poor" but history paints a different picture.
It was the Republicans that fought and freed the slaves. It was the Republicans that sought restitution to the American Indians for the way they were treated; it was the Republicans that led the Civil Rights movement, it was Strom Thurmond a democrat that holds the record for the longest filibuster when he tried to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1957.
So why does the majority of minorities tend to vote democratic? What is it that the democrats sell that they scoop up?

Democrats sell one promise after another, lie after lie. They are for the poor. They are for keeping the poor -- poor.

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Democrats are willing to destroy our way of life and our country by looking at amnesty as a way to increase their voter support. They know that by passing an amnesty bill, they will increase their voter support by 16 million people; that is if all of them register and actually vote. By continuing the nanny state and giving these people health care, welfare and food stamps, the people will stay at or under the poverty level and will pay no taxes, thus guaranteeing democratic voters.
The democrats are not for the poor; they are for the elitists and use the poor as a voter base.

Illegal drugs brought to this country across our southern border destroy 1.6 million teen lives a year. And that doesn’t take into account the number of family members that are affected by these kids addicted to these drugs.

Everyday drugs are being carried across our open border. Every week people die at the hands of drug cartels trafficking drugs across our border.

Our federal government has done nothing to enforce the laws that exist. The people of Arizona -- fed up with the wishy-washy John McCain and his left of center ways passed a state law that in effect, gives state law enforcement the tools in which to carry out the laws dictated by the federal statutes.

There is neither “profiling” nor “racism” in this bill. People will not have to do as the liberal talking heads and the state run media has suggested will happen with the “show me your papers” remarks assimilating the law with Gestapo law enforcement tactics. Nothing could be further from the truth. This law does nothing more than what the federal law already provides for.

Read it for yourself SB1070. If you don’t have time to read the entire law, read at least lines 16 – 31.

There are close to 23 million illegal aliens in this country. The non-Mexican count is 579,543. So you can do the math and see were the major problem is. Additional stat’s can be found here:

So much controversy over racial profiling has been brought up, but if you ask the legal Mexican immigrants and the Mexican-Americans if they mind being questioned, there is a resounding “no problem”. These people have or are in the process of paying their dues to become legal citizens of this country, they play by the rules set up to protect them and us and resent the fact that congress is even considering amnesty.

The illegals are not just taking white American jobs; they are taking jobs from the Mexican-Americans as well.

The cost of Social Services programs since 1996 to handle illegal immigration is a staggering $397+ billion. We cannot afford this cost any longer. We need to elect people to congress that will enforce the laws and protect our borders.

I believe that every one as the right to live in whichever country they want, but I also believe that in order to get the benefits of that country, you must play by the rules. Learn the heritage, learn the language and pay your fair share.

Open Borders

The liberals always jump to conclusions anytime there is a problem. For example, the Times Square bomber that was stopped this week, the Democratic NYC Mayor Bloomberg suggested that it was “probably some right wing nut job that was unhappy with the health care bill” Why would he suggest this?

There has been no reported incident of violence by any conservative, tea party member or for that matter a republican, but the liberals are trying to show tea party members as Timothy McVeigh wannbes.

This is the third attack in a year on our soil. We had the underwear bomber in Detroit, the massacre at Ft. Hood Texas and now this foiled attempt in New York which by the way was thwarted by a newspaper stand vendor, but of course Janet Napolitano took full credit for the capture. Napolitano was of course the one that stated, “the system worked” when the Detroit bomber was captured by passengers after his bomb material failed to ignite.
How can she say, “the system worked” when the system had nothing to do with the detection or capture of this terrorist.

No one in the Obama administration will call these what they are; a terrorist attack. They don’t want to step on any toes in the Muslim world.

They will however call the people of Arizona “racists” for having the guts to enforce the laws that the federal government will not. These are laws already on the books yet the federal government will not enforce them.

The high cost of cheap labor is destroying our country.

According to the Center on Immigration Studies, households headed by illegal aliens imposed more than $26.3 billion in costs on the federal government in 2002 and paid only $16 billion in taxes, creating a net fiscal deficit of almost $10.4 billion, or $2,700 per illegal household.
Among the largest costs are Medicaid ($2.5 billion); treatment for the uninsured ($2.2 billion); food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches ($1.9 billion); the federal prison and court systems ($1.6 billion); and federal aid to schools ($1.4 billion).

Legalization (Amnesty) would increase average tax payments by 77 percent, but average costs would rise by 118 percent.

The Center did two simulations of immigration reform and found that in both cases the deficit left by each illegal household would be -$6,022 and -$7,668 It’s a no win situation. Granting amnesty will not alleviate the problem.

Leaving our borders wide open will however lead to many more attacks on American soil and will certainly kill more people. We need to treat these foiled bombers as if the bombs had gone off and we need to secure our borders now.
